Lights Out and Away We Go!
Back to Work
Welcome back to a new season at SHU Racing! With everything getting back to normal, we look forward to recruiting new team members and seeing old faces back in lab after a tough couple of years! Bring on the 2022 season!!
2021 Season Review
Where do I begin… it was a real push to get the car ready with the short time frame between the lift of Covid restrictions and the FSUK event, but we did it! It took many late nights and some very long shifts to get the car in a race ready state so all I can say is a massive thank you to those who put their lives on hold to ensure the car was race ready.
We beat our previous records in the Acceleration Event, Skid Pad and even put it on provisional POLE in the Sprint Qualifying! Unfortunately, we were pipped by 0.5s by Sheff Racing (at least it stayed in Sheffield)!! All great signs to show that as a team, we are taking huge steps year on year.
We would like to thank the Sponsors and Technical Staff at the University for all the support they provided throughout the season and look forward to beginning to work with you all again over the coming months.
We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all the managers for their hard work throughout last year. We hope that we can do them proud this year and maybe see them at Formula Student UK next summer! Finally, we would also like to congratulate them all on achieving fantastic final degree classifications!
